Hi, I'm Hannah an integrative counsellor based in Teignmouth and
I am passionate about counselling and helping people to feel empowered to explore their lives, find their answers, develop new ways to cope and make changes. Life can be challenging in many ways and counselling can provide a safe space where you will feel heard and supported to grow
As your counsellor I will meet you where you are, and provide a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and increase your insight and awareness
As a client you will be my focus, I do not believe that there is a one size fits all model of counselling, your experience is unique and we can work together to find what works for you

I have around 10 years of experience of working in a variety of mental health settings. I spent six years providing creative wellbeing interventions for adults with learning disabilities while running individual and group Reminiscence Therapy for adults with dementia in care homes and hospitals.

I currently work for the NHS providing assessments and short term treatments for mental health issues. For the past two years I have provided volunteer counselling for a Domestic Abuse charity in Exeter
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
